The provision of learning media for blind people is one of the things that must be considered for equality in educating the nation through inclusive education. One of the media that can be used by blind children in learning to recognize braille characters is Refreshable Braille Display media that can work according to instructions from the user. However, the media is still difficult to find because they have to order abroad for around 3600 euros, the equivalent of about 53 million rupiahs. In addition, this device is limited to the Latin writing system’s letters and punctuation marks. It cannot be used to generate Arabic letters or the so-called hijaiyah characters. This study aims to produce Dynamic Hijaiyah Braille Display media with voice features and integrated android, which can be used as a medium for recognizing Arabic letters for blind children. Therefore, as the solution, we offer the Dynamic Hijaiyah Braille Display media, which has the advantage of Arabic letters in the form of braille characters and can sound according to the letters pressed. Learning can also be monitored by parents or teachers virtually through the android application. In this research, an electronic system is designed to accommodate two braille character cells for Arabic letters and their punctuation. The device is also equipped with voice features and an integrated android application. This system was tested with the results of being able to generate two patterns with a functioning solenoid and integration with Android devices using the Firebase platform. Furthermore, the voice feature can be operated properly according to the hijaiyah character being learned.
